Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
10 - 12 July 2012
Within the last twelve years, digital technology and the use of the World Wide Web has significantly influenced and affected daily lives. Revolutionising the way people participate in complex issues as well as how they experience reality. As a result, digital technologies such as interactive exhibits are now commonplace in museum settings, providing ‘edutainment’ for visitors. However, many technologies co-exist uneasily with more traditional methods of display. This demo seeks to examine how culture can be experienced through interaction between visitors and digital representation through the use of a digital board. Visitors’ experience of culture is then explored through an exhibition that provides the audience an opportunity to interact with digitised artefacts. The interactive board is not a move to replace but to complement rather conventional methods of exhibition.
